                                   Swami Ramdev 

Indian yoga guru Swami Ramdev was invited to New York as a guest at a United Nations-sponsored program against poverty, organized by the Millennium Campaign. This was his first visit to the United States, but yoga guru Baba Ramdev already has plenty of fans in this country.

The lecture was part of a two-day conference on poverty alleviation being conducted by a standing council of the world body and attended by social activists from all over the world. The conference forms part of an UN initiative in 2000 that pledged to eradicate poverty by 2015. But Annan is concerned that several nations have not taken adequate steps so far. Ramdev had earlier this year travelled to several European nations including Britain where he received appreciation for his work on ayurveda and yoga

“Swami ji’s message was very clear that we only take responsibility for ourselves, our own health for the state of our country. That very much was in line with the program against poverty initiative, which is asking each country to take responsibility for the state,” UNDP Global Media Coordinator, Anand Kantaria said.
